    If by "smaller planes" you are referring to regional airline type airplanes in the 30 to 90 seat range, that's not really true.

    Larger planes make a bigger splat when they hit.

    A 727 came down a block (400 feet) from my house 42 years ago next week.  All killed, plus some on the ground, total of 144.  At the time, it was the greatest loss of life by air crash in history of the US up until another eight months later when 129 more than that died.
